I Purchased an I-4 Premier Milan Manual. The shift knob on it is fading after 10,000 miles. It is wearing down from normal use. I am a guy so no creams or lotions on my hands. I work in surgery washing my hands 6-10 times a day. If anything they are very clean. I am getting a new one from the dealer covered by warranty. Is anyone else with manual models experiencing this? I had a civic with a plastic one, not leather like now, that lasted 7 years.
